An Ergonomic Kitchen
The work triangle is the best know kitchen design principle. This rule states that the kitchen’s three main work areas, the sink, cooktop, and fridge, should be laid out in a triangular shape. If your kitchen is large enough to accommodate this configuration, you will have an optimally ergonomic cooking space. To resist the urge of climbing onto a chair or the countertop, you should also consider adding footstools for easy access to the upper shelves.
An Ergonomic Living Room
Surprisingly, reclining in the living room can cause back and neck pain! Integrating curved lines, and therefore eliminating the sharp angles that pull the body out of alignment, is a smart way of making this room more user-friendly. Plus, gently undulating lines are far more relaxing! Every decor element—from the art to the furniture—should be selected for its cocooning effect, maximizing comfort. Such “stress-free” pieces are perfect for rooms where ergonomic shapes and designs come together. Reclining armchairs, upholstered sofas, L-shaped sectional couches (or corner couches), and rounded edges are both cozy and kind to the body, even after several hours of lounging.
An Ergonomic Home Office
Long periods in a static posture are very damaging to the spine. To reduce the risk of injury, get an adjustable desk that will allow you to work both sitting and standing. When sitting, make sure your screen is slightly below eye level, that your elbows and knees can rest at a 900 angle and that you have sufficient lighting.
